New dressform

So, this post is a little late, but it's finally here. I had an enjoyable time at the horse sale on Friday. I got to see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while, which is always nice. My parents didn't end up buying the horse they were looking at, so they are still looking for a new stallion.

My dressform course was pretty neat on Saturday. Basically, you partner up and wrap your partner in butcher's tape, make sure it is almost dry (you can use a blowdryer to help), then cut your partner out it and patch up the back. Unfortunately, the room we were in was super hot and part way through I got sick because of the heat (it upsets my stomach), so my dressform was finished up outside by my partner and the instructor. I felt bad for them because it was actually really cold out! Thankfully though, we finished and I now have a snazzy new dressform that is exactly my shape (which was totally weird to see). Now I just need to get my dad to weld a stand for it. Then we can say goodbye to Matilda and hello to Megan Jr.!

I will update on the progress of my design course tonight or tomarrow!
